Neuronal Currents (s) having Cell-attached dendritic recordings in rats up to about 60um from the soma showed that low-threshold calcium channels were concentrated at proximal dendritic locations, sites known to receive excitatory synaptic connections from primary afferents, suggesting that they play a key role in the amplification of sensory inputs to TC neurons as Publication facts
